Our family of four (including a 10 year old and 7 year old) booked a relatively last minute vacation at the ranch for the five days that were available. It was perfect. Lodging (in Stonehenge), every meal and the wonderful staff who cooked, served and joined us (one better than the next, and I wish I had bought the cookbook while there), horseback riding and wonderful wranglers, fishing, white water rafting, the pool, my massage and the perfect weather which included rain and sun and warm days and cool nights...the whole thing went beyond our expectations. And everyone (other guests) we met there was also a pleasure to be around. The ride to brunch with a softball game high upon a mountain was certainly a highlite. It became abundantly clear why families return year after year; Karen and Dean are real gems!
